Suburban SW10DE Repair

Thanks to all of the help here and from Suburban, we finally found out why our HWH would not work on electric but worked fine on gas. After replacing two electric heating elements and no luck, called Suburban and was told to replace the thermostat as gas and electric each have a thermostat. Had to pry the cover off the thermostat as the seal had melted to the wall of the HWH. I had, wisely, ordered a new gasket. All is well now and we have hot water on electric and gas. While working on the HWH, we replaced the gas valve assembly because it had begun to rust and also replaced the anode rod. Ordered parts from American RV and they were cheaper than other websites I visited. Only complaint is they charge a lot for shipping $13.50 for 1 lb and slow to ship.
